Chronic Diarrhea Project

“We are no longer enrolling patients at this time, but look forward to having the results of the study available in the future.”

REFERRING VETERINARIANS: Information on Canine Diarrhea Study

072 20151212 tjtThe Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine is pleased to announce an exciting research initiative designed to develop more practical and cost-effective methods of managing chronic diarrhea in dogs. The goal of the initiative is to work in cooperation with our local practitioners to develop solid, cost-effective and evidence-based protocols for diagnosing and treating chronic diarrhea in dogs. These protocols are designed to be affordable for most pet owners and, wherever possible, to reduce the need for costly or invasive referral-level diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. We plan to recruit a large number of cases (up to 50 dogs) in a short period of time and, in order to encourage owner participation, the costs of diagnosing and treating dogs with chronic diarrhea will be covered by the project. We would greatly appreciate the help of our local practitioners with this exciting project.
